Scheer Velier MMW Wedderburn 11 Year Tropical Aged Rum

, , , , ,

Scheer Velier MMW Wedderburn 11 Year Tropical Aged Rum was created in collaboration between Dutch independent bottler Scheer and Master Blender and renowned rum guardian and advocate Luca Gargano of Velier.

A world exclusive, this limited edition Wedderburn (MMW marque) 11 Year Tropical Aged Rum set has been carefully selected along with its continental aged equivalent to showcase the differences between Continental versus Tropical aging. Truly unique!

Continental Aging

Produced from a blend of 2 casks distilled in 2008 and 10 casks distilled in 2007, the Continental version aged entirely in a continental climate in Europe has an ester content of 243.5 grams per hectolitre of pure alcohol. To really tame and get to grips with the strong personality of this Wedderburn Monymusk, it essential to give it time to open up. A vibrant example of this are the sublime notes of rubber and gum arabica which, much later, feed the dried extracts of the empty glass which show us the aromatic palette in a new light.

Tropical Aging

This version aged entirely in a tropical climate in Jamaica is a blend of 2 casks distilled in 2008 and 10 casks distilled in 2007. Part of the Wedderburn category of rums produced by the Monymusk-Clarendon distillery, it has an ester-content of 315.6 grams per hectolitre of pure alcohol. Extreme and uncompromising, it invites us to discover a palette of flavours and aromas that wavers between exuberance, originality and classicism. Shattering the boundaries of the tasting, it crosses oceans to troop deep into the heart of a famous Scottish island.

Each bottle is presented in its own individual presentation box and enclosed in an outer 2 bottle presentation box as shown.

Scheer Velier MMW Wedderburn 11 Year Tropical Aged Rum is part of a very special collaboration between Scheer / Main Rum and Velier.

Velier represents one of the biggest and most relevant realities in the Italian distribution and importation of distillates, especially whiskies and rums. It was founded in 1947 by Casimiro Chaix who, at the time, worked in the French Consulate in Genoa. From 1953 to 1983, this small family company specialized in the import and distribution of wines, champagne and liqueurs, exploiting the potential of the port of the Ligurian capital.

In 1983, at the age of 25, Luca Gargano acquired some Velier shares and under his influence the company began to specialize in the importation of exceptional distillates such as the legendary stock of St James Rum distilled in 1885 discovered by Luca in 1991. Since then these selections of rum have multiplied and led to the emergence of exceptional ranges

Traders from Genoa, Velier are the sons of Columbus and The Heirs of a tradition well known in the whole world. They firmly believe in their work. The family has been trading for over 100 years, originally in the textile sector, and now, since over 60 years, in wines, spirits and food.  Their absolute priority is not profit, but quality in all their choices.  Thanks to this, authentic gourmets can discover new products of excellent quality. They keep exploring.

Thankfully, in this world of increasingly standardised approach, it is still possible to find extraordinary products, which are created by real and passionate artists. Velier are a family run business, who believe in independent trade, based on strong human relationships.
